Sonam Kapoor shared a throwback picture from her school days on her social media handle as a part of #WhyTheGap campaign social initiative in collaboration with an NGO. She was nominated for the challenge by Twinkle Khanna.

The actress shared a group photo of her batch from her school days in Arya Vidya Mandir, Mumbai. In the picture, we can see cute little Sonam standing behind her class teacher in the picture flaunting her short hair. Along with the picture, she also shared an important message.

Take a look at the picture:

Earlier, Taapsee Pannu also took the challenge by sharing a throwback picture from her school days on her Instagram handle. The picture showed the actress in her school uniform standing on a podium, after having won the first prize in a sport. The Pink actress captioned it, "Sports have been an integral part of my life. School race tracks became my war zone every year and thanks to a supportive family and encouraging school teachers, I could have my moment of glory. Unfortunately, many kids don't have that support system. #WhyTheGap [sic]"

Before her, Akshay shared a black and white throwback photo of himself in which he can be seen sitting atop a bicycle. He wrote, "Growing up I was always inclined towards sports and my mother would ensure I got nutritious home-cooked meals to fuel my passion. But it's a privilege that millions of street children do not have access to. 11,72,604 children in India can't afford even a single meal a day! It's time to ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india [sic]."

The social media challenge was started by Twinkle Khanna to raise awareness about gender gaps in society. She wrote, "Growing up, as you can see not only did I have the same hairstyle as my class teacher( why? why? why?) but studying and doing well was very important to me and it all helped me to become an independent woman. 2/5 girls still don't complete school. Let's ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india to give every girl #TheRightStart - I nominate @sonamkapoor @tahirakashyap @akshaykumar to take this further by sharing their school memories [sic]"
